Social Media

"SOMATICS" stands for "Social Media and Technology in the Classroom Series." We offer ongoing presentations and discussions concerning the use of social media tools (including Facebook, Twitter, and other Apps) and modern instructional technology in the classroom (including the use of smartphones, tablets, video chat, and other tools).

You can join our private Facebook Group to engage in philosophical and practical discussions regarding these issues. The link to join is below (you will need to be logged into your Facebook Account. If you do not have a Facebook Account, you can sign up for one here.)
